Greetings again at the beginning of the second month of the new year-already. Tempus Fugit.

For the benefit of those that were not able to be at the last meeting, the Board of 

Directors decided to print a pictorial directory of the membership. This directory would include a current  picture, an in “service” picture if you have one and a short bio. Short bio means, your branch of service, time of service and your civilian career.The directory will be in a loose leaf booklet form and will also include a history of the Chapter.           Charles Hoak has volunteered to head up the project with charter member Steve Culbert working on the history. I believe this will prove very informative and interesting documentation of our chapter. Please do not be too shy to parti-cipate, it must include all members and I hope we have information resources enough to have a deceased members section.

          For several reasons I want to draw  your attention to how this new year has started off. First to express my appreciation for all those who stepped up to take a position or volunteered to keep a position and to keep you informed as to how hard some are working on our behalf. It may have been difficult filling some of the elected positions but there has been no such problem with committee or coordinator positions.
